"But after we win in 2018, it will be leftward HO!"

2016: "Democratic Party leaders are upping the pressure on Bernie Sanders to drop his presidential campaign, alarmed that his continued presence is undermining efforts to beat the presumptive Republican nominee, Donald Trump, and again win the White House.
“ 'I don’t think they think of the downside of this,” said Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., a supporter of front-runner Hillary Clinton and broker of the post-primary peace between Clinton and then-Illinois Sen. Barack Obama in 2008." . . .

"Lee was rated the most liberal member of the House in GovTrack's 2017 ideology rankings. Crowley fell in the middle of the House Dems' ranking.
"In a letter to colleagues today, Lee stressed that "the strength of our caucus lies in our diversity of experiences and ideas.' " . . .

* That would be on the California coast, in case you didn't know.

The battle cry of leftists:
